Woo hoo! I've been hanging out for the flat pattern - now I can get started on my crafting! Nice to see you back from the Labor Day holiday Joe - now get straight onto this flat pattern housework! (pretty please!)
I really like the suede but as I posted elsewhere probably a brighter white for the plastics. I'll ponder the fabric question. I don't like vinyl, particularly black vinyl at all. What is that black fabric?
For the bezel I'd like a brushed silver metal... or if metal is not possible possibly a silver plastic like LG uses for TVs, LCD screen surrounds....Not sure how you'd colour match this with a TPE surround though...might have to go black/white surround, silver bezel, not sure about that.
Actually for colour matches, I'd tune in to the new Ikea catalogue and follow their lead. (We are having an October release due to a new superstore opening in my neck of the woods so I haven't seen more than the cover at this stage (most unfortunately)...I've heard the colours are pretty loud).
As a crafter, and I know you have plans for this, I'd like to be able to get several surrounds and bezels in different colours...an interchangeable system to suit my moods and my preferred chumby cover for the week.
Also, it is imperative that TPE spares are available for modders. I have a LOVE chair from Ikea that has piping that I am guessing is made of TPE or something very similar. They have sewn too close to the edge and it has split straight through. I imagine that by resewing I will go through several TPE covers.
Any idea at this stage what these parts will sell for?
